HTC Desire 816, ZTE Emblem, LG Pulse and Unify reportedly heading to Virgin Mobile USA


Four new mid-range smartphones are heading to Virgin Mobile USA, according to popular gadget leaker @evleaks. Pictured above from left to right are the LG Pulse, LG Unify, HTC Desire 816 and the ZTE Emblem. The HTC Desire 816 is already available elsewhere, so you can expect a 5.5-inch 720p display, a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of local storage space, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter, a 2,600mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat.

As for the other three handsets, we’re not exactly sure what to expect, however if they’re launching alongside the Desire 816, it’s likely that the handsets will feature hardware on a par with HTC’s well-balanced mid-range device. Virgin Mobile USA operates on Sprint’s network, so it’s possible that these four phones will utilize the carrier’s LTE setup, but like the devices themselves, this has yet to be confirmed.
